Come Home For Christmas

1 Come Home For Christmas With LUMIPro

It is getting closer to that day that either brings out the child or the Grinch in all of us. Well, those who celebrate Christmas, anyway. It has been a long time since I went all out for Christmas; it is just my cat and me, and she views decorations as her special playthings, so I tend to keep things to a minimum.

This year marks my 15th Christmas in Australia. I still haven’t gotten used to the idea of Christmas in summer, but no matter where I call home, that’s where you’ll find me for Christmas.

I shot this photo for the LUMIPro Holiday Advertisement contest, and to my surprise and delight, I was one of the winners. Thank you to Stefan, for choosing my photo and especially thank you for such a wonderful product.

I also want to thank everyone who voted for me in the Avi Choice Awards. Although I didn’t win, I was just honoured to be nominated and touched by the support I received. I especially want to thank Starr, who nominated me. Your thoughtfulness is a gift that I will always treasure.

I hope to post more before Christmas rolls around, but as everyone else, I have very busy days ahead. If I don’t see you before, I hope you are able to come home for Christmas…wherever that may be.

    Congratulations and well deserved place, its a great photo. Love the playful cat and dog and I missed the hamsters at first, well…until I read the ‘list of pretty stuff’ and went back for another look because I said….I didnt notice Peek wearing stockings lol!

    Hope you have restful break over the Christmas Holidays and go out and party hard with friends, New Years Eve.

    Same wishes for everyone reading this blog 🙂
